27th April 2016…Antony House

20160427_152720.jpgA National Trust day, and today we visited Antony which is nearby, being just near Torpoint. It’s one of those houses that doesn’t embrace you, and not one I would be in a hurry to return to were it not for the fact that the gardens are supposed to be magnificent with camellias, magnolias, azaleas and so on…maybe we caught it on a bad day? I did enjoy20160427_153425.jpg seeing the portrait of Charles 1 at his trial….although my head says I am a Parliamentarian, I always think I would have been a supporter of Charles. Somehow I feel a loyalty which I recognise I shouldn’t.

For lots of good detailed information see the Historic England site
